The Powell Family
Past & Present

 In Memory of Chad Berdine
April 1, 1972
November 6, 1996



Where there is a challenge
I am to be found

Where there is romance
I wish to be there

When opportunity knocks
I open the door

My world is lonely
With decisions and such

For inside is a man
Fighting to get out

I cannot stop to smell a rose
For soon it may catch up

And reality strikes and forces
Me to show up

Family is forever
But canít you see inside this boy

Is a man searching for identity

By Chad Berdine

I can't believe I am here.
I am saying this with a tear.

 Everytime I think,
your faces come to mind.

I'd like for you to know that I took too much for granted.
For everything you gave to me and every thing I wanted.

You've been there to stand by my side,
and in the rough times you were my guide.

There has been times I wanted to be back home,
to hang with my friends and be with my own.
